mini nutella croissants easy quick recipe for using up puff pastry

If you have any frozen or chilled puff pastry you need to use up, or just want to make something fast using shop-bought puff pastry, these mini Nutella croissants are an incredibly easy option.

Apologies to any French readers as I’m pretty sure these don’t strictly qualify as “croissants”.

My chocolate spread wasn’t Nutella – it was a white and milk chocolate mixture. Any chocolate or chocolate hazelnut spread will work fine.

Wait! There’s more. Click for the recipe and more pics!

I was looking for easy thing to bake with the assistance of a toddler. I think I Googled “easy baking with kids” or something similar, and I came across this recipe at Kidspot.

This recipe uses shop-bought frozen puff pastry (defrosted prior to baking). Of course, if you want to make your own puff pastry, you can and I take my hat off to you!

I made the mistake of cutting my pastry strips too thick (more of that later), but the results were still very tasty.
